Registration Open for the 21st Annual National Service-Learning Conference(r)

Join your friends and colleagues from around the world for the 21st Annual National Service-Learning Conference — Inspire. Imagine. Innovate!

Online registration is now open for this event, which celebrates service-learning as a force that spans cultural and national boundaries, builds communities, and strengthens young people.

The conference is the largest gathering of youth and practitioners involved in service-learning, drawing approximately 2,500 attendees from across the United States and many other countries each year. Through three days of general sessions, a thought-leader series, service-learning projects, and networking, the conference engages participants in local, national, and global issues that service-learning addresses. Come explore more than 100 exhibits, and nearly 150 hands-on workshops and service-learning projects.

The 2010 conference will feature speeches by Sir Ken Robinson, an internationally recognized leader in creativity, innovation, and human resources; Carol Bellamy, President and CEO of World Learning and former executive director of UNICEF; and Benjamin Ajak, Benson Deng, Alephonsion Deng, and Judy Bernstein, authors of They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky: The True Story of Three Lost Boys from Sudan.
